Students hoping to transfer in lower division credits in Sociology should meet with an advisor as soon as they declare their minor to see if a course substitution is possible. In some cases, lower division electives may be transferred in and accepted as a substitute course for SOC 101.
This course is an introduction to the sociological perspective. Students examine the social processes that shape societies and the course of their histories. The social nature of biographies is explored through the study of the family and socialization, education and work, bureaucracy and the economy, gender, social class, and race and ethnicity.
